Disney (NYSE:DIS) has been a quiet out-performer for several years. It’s strange to say that about a company that’s so large and well-known, but I don’t think many investors realize how well Disney has done over the last eight years.
The stock was an incredible performer through its early life, but beginning in the mid-1990s, Disney started to lag the market. In August 2002, however, Disney regained its mojo.
The company just raised its annual dividend from 35 cents per share to 40 cents per share.
